Have You Ever? Tag – Convention Edition

For me, the end of July usually means London Film and Comic Con, which is one of the highlights of the convention calendar for me. It also marks the Summer – Autumn convention season, which means I get to spend time with my convention family and like minded people. But sadly, like most large events most conventions been put on hold until later in the year. 🙁 Which is a shame. I’ve really missed going to conventions this year and being able to see my comic con family. So, when I stumbled up the ‘Have You Ever? Convention Edition’ tag […]

London Film and Comic Con 2019

Last weekend my family and I made our annual trip to Olympia for London Film and Comic Con 2019. It’s always one of highlights of the convention calendar for me and this year marks our tenth year of attending! I can’t quite believe I’ve been going to conventions for a over decade now (my first was Dalek Invasion back in 2008). London Film and Comic Con 2019 was set to be the biggest yet, with a guest list including Aquaman’s Jason Mamoa, Charlie Sheen, Batman’s Val Kilmer and Christina Ricci, to name but a few. Honestly the guest list gets […]

What’s in my bag? – Comic con edition

With comic con season in full swing, I thought now would be the perfect time to share what essentials I pack in my day bag. This is for a 3-day weekend convention and based on what I brought with me to London Film and Comic Con this past weekend (full write up on that to follow!). Ticket – Many conventions organisers now accept an e-ticket and some even have their own app. However I still like a paper copy in case my phone battery dies – which has happened. I usually spend a lot of battery power taking photos and […]

London Film and Comic Con 2018

Last month my family and I made our yearly trip to the Olympia Exhibition Centre for London Film and Comic con (LFCC). The event is held over three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) at the end of July and the highlight of the convention calendar for me. The show gets bigger every year and, in my opinion, this year’s line up was fantastic. With big names such as Jason Mamoa (Aquaman, Game of Thrones), Sam Neil (Jurassic Park), Meat Loaf and Steven Seagal attending the event. Along with not one, not two, but eight doctors from Doctor Who appearing over […]

Hilton London Olympia | Hotel Review

After a long, tiring day at London Film and Comic con, we headed back to our hotel, the Hilton Olympia which was a 5 minute walk away which came in very handy getting up on Sunday to get our VQ tickets. Unfortunately that’s one of the only good things about our experience. The room was good, don’t get me wrong, it’s probably one pf the best hotel beds I’ve ever slept on, and I slept well but the service in the bar / restaurant was atrocious! We waited an hour for food only for it to come out cold and […]

London Film and Comic Con 2017 – Day 2 – Alyson Hannigan & YALC

Catch up on Day 1 here! 🙂 Another early start Sunday as I decided to get my new Witchcraft journal signed by Alyson. I wasn’t sure if my diamond pass allowed me to go down her autograph queue a second time so I picked up a VQ ticket (number 54 just in case). The 5 of us decided to have a group photo on the Big Bang Theory sofa and each had a turn in Sheldon’s spot. We had 5 photos so were able to do 5 different poses. I’ve done prop photo shoots before bit this was definitely one […]
